While the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award rewards those who complete national service, the G.I. Bill provides post-service benefits (including education) to veterans of the U.S. Military.

The Serve America Act allows veterans to use the AmeriCorps award for education, apprenticeship, and on-the job training at institutions that accept the G.I. Bill. This greatly expands the opportunities for award beyond the Title IV list.

Non veteran members who earned education awards between October 1, 2009 and December 22, 2011 are also allowed unrestricted use of their awards at educational institutions on the G.I. Bill approved list.

You can find schools and other institutions that accept the G.I. Bill through the Department of Veterans Affairs website. You cannot use the AmeriCorps award for certifications, licenses, and national exams approved for the G.I. Bill. As mentioned earlier, the AmeriCorps award is limited to education, apprenticeship, and on-the-job training.

Many of the schools you will find on the G.I. Bill also appear on the Title IV list. Public and and private colleges and universities will often appear on both lists, as well as trade schools and overseas schools.

However, the G.I. Bill list offers far more trade schools and overseas schools, as well as apprentice programs with government agencies such as police departments. The G.I. Bill list also includes more flight schools and schools with a religious focus than the Title IV list.

If you can't find what you are looking for in a Title IV school, check the G.I. Bill list!

NOTE: If you are the recipient of an Education Award given to you by a parent, grandparent, or foster parent, you can use your award for Title IV schools but not a non-Title IV learning institution on the approved G.I. Bill list.
